Former mayor speaks up for Ortiz

-A A +A

Maybe Mayor Ortiz should feel honored just to be the subject of a recall. When I was mayor of Las Vegas, Lorenzo Flores and his gang ... stood up, just after I called a council meeting to order, and presented me with a rope with a nicely tied noose on the end of it. He asked me if I knew what it was for before I had the police escort him and his gang out of the meeting. I guess if I had a choice these days, I would take the recall over a hangin,’ but the hangin’ would be a lot less expensive than the recall.
